We want to examine thinking outside the box and how doing the things the way they always have been done isn’t necessarily the way it has to continue to be done. Sometimes getting away from the norm may be a better way, and sometimes it may not be.
Adopt openness to new ways of visualizing the workplace world around you and a willingness to accept the concept of exploration. Look at things with a new perspective without designating the “old ways” as wrong. You’re just taking the “old ways” out of the comfort zone!
• Observe outside the box thinking and its value
• Study the effects it has on others
• Sacrifices/consequences that can occur
• The rewards that can be gained.
